 Gentoo PPC Linux

TuxPPC reviews Gentoo PPC Linux.

"Indeed, Gentoo Linux is rather unique on the PPC platform. You don't get any nifty Install CDs with hundreds of prebuilt software packages. No, Gentoo is a distribution that is mostly built from scratch. They provide you with a boot CD and a very basic set of precompiled packages, just enough to go start building your Gentoo distribution using their great building system called Portage. So why go through that pain? The answer is simple, you get a fully working Linux system built to your needs and preferences."
